How to create Reindeer Nails!

As you all know I'm going to be doing a series consisting of four christmas nail tutorials. You've probably all seen my Christmas Pudding nail tutorial so today I'm going to show you the second christmas nail tutorial. As you'll have guessed by the title of this post, it's going to be a reindeer nail tutorial.

To create Reindeer Nails you will need:
  • White nail varnish
  • Red glitter nail varnish
  • Dark brown nail varnish
  • Light brown nail varnish
  • Black nail varnish
  • Dotting tools
If you do not own any dotting tools then you could use cocktail sticks or anything that has a point. 

If you would like to create reindeer nails all you have to do is follow my nice and easy steps.

1.) Apply a coat of white nail varnish to your nails. You may need more than one coat, it just depends on the quality of your nail varnish.

2.) Using the light brown nail varnish, create half circles (the reindeer heads) at the tips of your finger nails. 

3.) Using the dark brown nail varnish and a small dotting tool, create the reindeer antlers. For this you will need 2 long brown lines and then you will need to apply 2 smaller lines to the long lines. Do this for each of your nails.

4.) Using the light brown nail varnish and a medium dotting tool, apply a dot (the reindeer ear) to either side of the half circle (the reindeer head)

Using the dark brown nail varnish, create smaller half circles (the reindeer noses) at the tips of your finger nails. For your thumb nails, use red glitter nail varnish instead. 

5.) For the eyes;
Using the white nail varnish and a medium dotting tool, dot two dots onto each reindeer head.
Once dry, use the black nail varnish and a small dotting tool, dot a dot into each of the white dots. 

And we're done!...
